Let’s get this out of the way right at the start: go see this movie. Knives Out is fun and worth the time. It’s an old-fashioned mystery. Think Ellery Queen, Columbo and Clue, even Murder On The Orient Express. It’s filled with completely unlikeable and eccentric characters—none of whom would cause you to be upset if they were guilty. Except, of course, the one person who seems guilty is the outsider, and wholly likable.]]>

An Event https://www.jackmcdaniel.net/an-event New Fiction - Short Story

Pink leaves tickled her arms and the forest floor of teal-covered grass was soft beneath her feet. The sea sounded distant though she knew it was just on the other side of the tree line. She smiled; The planet’s pungent smell—life, death, decay—was different from home but not in an unpleasant way. She stopped and raised her face to the warm sunshine that filtered through the canopy of trees. It transported her and she found she was young again, carefree and without the weight of adulthood and its many expectations.]]>

Movie Review: Ford v Ferrari https://www.jackmcdaniel.net/ford-v-ferrari Wow! What a good movie. Ford v Ferrari was strong all the way through. The pacing was great and the acting fantastic throughout the entire movie. Matt Damon and Christian Bale were excellent. Even the race scenes felt realistic. It should be noted, if you aren't a big race car fan you'll still enjoy this movie. There was a great deal of excitement around LeMans when I was young, which reminds me how quickly and much things have changed and shifted. Back then, the '60s and even the '70s, racing, and cars in general, were still relatively new and exciting. Reaching the limits of what would be possible was still well into the future and in some ways it was a golden era for pushing the limits beyond anything known.]]> Mon, 18 Nov 2019 06:45:00 -0700 https://www.jackmcdaniel.net/ford-v-ferrari Terminator: Dark Fate - Impressions https://www.jackmcdaniel.net/terminator-dark-fate-impressions Terminator Dark Fate

The first two Terminator movies came out when I was young and I really liked them at the time. They seemed different from other movies that had been on the big screen, grittier than Star Wars, darker thank Star Trek and filled with lots of action. The three movies that followed lost me. I saw them, but wasn’t really into the storylines. Maybe that was because I had aged, or maybe they weren’t that good.]]>
